Along comes another spring season which means it’s time to spruce up your home with the latest interior design trends. And though many people assume that they must purge their outdated, untrendy items in order to fit the latest looks and designs, this isn’t necessarily true. Many of these new trends can be accomplished with a fresh coat of paint, small additions to your decor, and some simple rearranging of items you already have. Take a look at some of these 2021 spring interior design trends and let Reno Paint Mart help you transform your home for the upcoming season.
Incorporate 2021 Colors of the Year
As you may know, Pantone announces the new color of the year just before the new year begins and this year, they’ve chosen two colors. This was done to show how important it is to focus on not just one thing but to give your attention to a multitude of things. With everything going on in the world, it’s critical to realize that many issues deserve our attention and this message is conveyed through the two colors chosen by Pantone this year.
This year’s Colors of the Year include “Illuminating Yellow” and “Ultimate Grey”. This combination of colors creates a perfect balance of bold and muted colors to give your home a bit of life while ensuring it maintains a place of peace. By using vivid yellow and neutral grey in your home, you can easily create a space that is warming and uplifting, making home your favorite place to be.
To implement this trend in your home, try painting one of your walls Ultimate Grey and use bright yellow colors as accents with throw pillows, flowers, or wall decor. Or, if you’re feeling bold, you can paint an accent wall yellow and use grey pieces such as furniture or rugs to complement the wall color. The possibilities are endless with this interior design trend.
Cottagecore But Make it Chic
Cottagecore styles have become extremely popular since the quarantine started, and it’s pretty easy to see why. This trend is perfect for those of you who are working from home or are just spending more time indoors and want to feel as comfortable as possible. The cottagecore trend has been branded as “Granny Chic” because the style is very reminiscent of simpler times. Many people associate cottagecore design with vintage cottages hidden away in the woods, which is where this style gets its inspiration from.
To create this romantic interpretation of rural life, try adding touches of pastel, gingham prints, and vintage ornaments to your home. Also, don’t be afraid to go a little overboard with throw blankets and pillows. The theme of this trend is comfort and having layered pillows and blankets helps emulate that theme. Another key component of this trend is using various prints in one area. You can easily find gingham prints on throw pillows and other decor, and incorporating a large vintage print rug is a great way to elevate your cottagecore style. Also, try to add natural mahogany or walnut wood furniture to the area for a slight vintage feel.
Contemporary Farmhouse and Modern Country
The farmhouse/country style may seem a bit outdated, but by making some modern adjustments, this theme can still be considered trendy for this season. Again, this trend appeals mostly to those who enjoy the comfort and serenity that their home brings them. This means creating a cozy environment that reduces stress and invokes feelings of solace.
To get this look, start by adding warm, amber tones with paint or accent decor. Also, don’t forget to add in some floral prints. You can easily accomplish this with printed renter-friendly wallpapers or even by incorporating real flowers throughout the home. Embroidery is another popular addition to the contemporary country vibe and is available in several types of fabrics.
A key part of the modern farmhouse trend is to utilize muted colors in your decor and keep things as natural as possible.
Eco-Friendly Products and the Inclusion of Plants
In recent years, becoming more eco-friendly and being eco-conscious are necessary to sustain our world for generations to come. With that in mind, it’s crucial that we try to use decor, furniture, and other items in our home that are eco-friendly and ecological. This is where you can use the items you already have to create a style that you love while ensuring that your carbon footprint doesn’t grow. Thrift shops and second-hand stores have become all the rage in the past few years, and they provide completely sustainable materials. Rather than purchasing brand new items and having them shipped to your door, try your local shops for some unique pieces that will elevate your home. Not only is this eco-friendly, but it’s also a great way to incorporate some vintage pieces into your design.
And don’t forget to include some plants in your home. Whether you add just a few plant species or want to create your own indoor jungle, plants provide much-needed life that can be felt throughout the entire home. Some of the most common and popular houseplants include:
- Rubber plant
- Fiddle Leaf Fig
- Golden Pothos
- Philodendron (various)
- Monstera Deliciosa
- Spider plant
- ZZ plant
- Peace Lily
Mix Up Your Textures
Textures have become a major inclusion of interior design trends over the years due to their ability to transform a dull room into a lively living space. And the best part about this tip is that there are really no rules and you have unlimited combinations of texture options that can all be tailored to fit your style. Adding various textures of varying sizes and shapes gives your home dimension and helps your style stand out. Textures can also be layered and mixed around which creates even more depth. Some examples of various textures you can use are:
- Velvet cloths
- Wood art, furniture, floors, or other accents
- Metal furniture and accessories
- Leather furniture
- Crown molding
- Wicker furniture
- Different wall textures
